Toying with Science

The Clarion at Brazosport College makes it a priority to have educational and fun family shows as part of its annual performance season. This year’s schedule is no exception.

On Tuesday, Nov. 12, Garry Krinsky will bring his energetic “Toying with Science” show to audiences of all ages with two performances, scheduled at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. 

With his animated movement and non-stop energy, it’s been said that Krinsky resembles a living cartoon. Since 1978, he has brought his high energy and experience to thousands of schools, theaters and festivals. He has also performed on live television, including the “NBC Today Show.” In 1995, Krinsky created his “Toying with Science” program and has since been touring it across the U.S. and Canada to rave reviews.

“Toying with Science” is a fast-paced, varied and dynamic program. Commissioned and developed with the Museum of Science in Boston, this performance explores, among other things, the scientific principles of gravity, leverage, fulcrums and simple machines. Combining circus skills, mime, original music, and audience involvement, Krinsky and his audience investigate basic scientific information and delve into the imaginations of scientists who explore our world. 

“Toying with Science” is part of the Clarion’s educational outreach program and several fifth-graders from area elementary schools will be in attendance. 

Tickets for the Krinsky’s “Toying with Science” show are available to the public for $10 and can be purchased online at or by contacting the Clarion Box Office at (979) 230-3156.
